@Roland, good reference, thanks for posting.
@pierre, this stuff will actually be harder to screw up than the cheap sheets of birch with the veneer that wants to chip and de-lam when you so much as look at it. It is really well built, and the veneer is super hard, both of which lend themselves to a good cut. A good idea, which would help all around, would be to get a nice 100 tooth blade on the saw. That and follow Rolands tips above.
